Jake, Jake, Jake....

Happy Birthday, our miracle boy.  Nine years ago, we didn't know if our one pound ten ounce bundle of joy, born three months too early would get to stay with us...but he did and we are so glad. 
Jake is our second grandchild, thanks to miracles performed every day at Arkansas Children's Hospital and the will of God, we have him in our life.
We have watched this young man grow from a tiny perfect being to the fine young man he is today.  We have loved him since he was no bigger than a good sized sack of candy. 
...and boy, are we proud of him.
Happy Birthday, Jakearooroo!
We love you!!

My son was also born 3 months premature, and Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock kept him alive (naturally-speaking, of course).

Happy Birthday Jake - looks like ur havin a pile of fun and everyone to spoil you. It sure is a miracle when premies enter the world and all the great technical/medical aides that help ltl babies grow up to fine young adults, eh. Back in my day of birth, My Mom always told the story that I couldn't wait to get out and out I came at 7 months. A pound of body and a pound of jet black hair........AND LOOK AT ME NOW. ha,ha
Have a great day!
